It started out, I loved this guy, it started out we'd have a fight and he'd just sort of grab my arm. I didn't think a lot about it and then it turned into pushing me into a wall and then it went beyond that to actually taking his hand and grabbing my face and saying, 'I could ruin your career if I wanted to and no one would want you.'

Venom had several different iterations, and there are several things that are very unique, interesting and specific.
